Terrence Xiao ‘20

PSRF Project: Achieving Zero Waste

Major(s): Engineering, Environmental Studies (anticipated)

Terrence grew up in Beijing, China, a city where almost every aspect of his childhood was affected by heavy pollution. These circumstances helped shape his appreciation for the environment and the need to transition to a sustainable framework of living.

“I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to apply and substantiate the academic theories and concepts learned in class as tangible, working solutions to waste management issues on campus, and to engage directly with Swarthmore’s community as a platform for sustainability and environmentalism.“
